mom that can't afford rent? >> you turn a shipping container into your home. >> see the results of a good idea and a lot of hard work. and most drivers couldn't do this if they tried. how one woman managed to take out 11 cars in a parking lot. all right, you guys, it's time to get today's show started. and nick has our first story for us. >> cops have to make life-and-death decisions in a split-second. this dash cam video shows us how quickly things can go wrong this is from dearborn, michigan, police are chasing hassan bazi. this police car is on its way to the scene where another officer has pulled bazi over. as the police car approaches, you'll see another officer standing in the middle of the street, trying to get the suspect to get out of the car. [ sirens ] [ gunshots ] >> you hear some gunshot there
9:02 am
is. >> he fired at the guy? >> you hear the officer shoot five times. those bullets missed bazi and after a short pursuit it appears that a dhl delivery truck intentionally gets into the path of a speeding car and cause it is to crash. >> what's all the debris in the roadway. >> the car and delivery truck. bazi is not fazed, he gets out of the car and runs off on foot. but it apprehended moments later. bazi has a history of mental illness and apparently was not on his medication. we just wrapped up the holiday season. if you think your holiday travel was really bad, getting place to place, well, get a load of this video. this is in la paz, bolivia. the capital city of bolivia. you see a bus carrying passengers trying to navigate a really, really narrow road.
9:03 am
and you can see the road is on a hillside. and look at the surface. this is loose gravel. >> not even paved. >> yes, not paved at all. we're talking about dirt and it's not very wide. now this area is a dangerous area to travel in la paz, bolivia. sometimes referred to as el camino de la muerta, which means the road of death. we would like to think this is common, because they don't have miles and miles of roads that we've been accustomed to. if you have to get someplace, you have to use these mountain roads, which frequently get washed out. >> oh! [ screams ] >> oh! >> all of a sudden, the camera comes back up and the bus is completely gone. >> no! >> it fell more than 160 feet down into this ravine.
9:04 am
you can actually hear people screaming and you can hear people reacting to the bus falling. and you see all of these people, fortunately, these people are the 50 passengers who were taken off the bus. he tried to navigate this very small roadway, unfortunately the driver on the bus did pass away. in the accident. as you can imagine, he fell 160 feet. according to the guy who uploaded the video, the back left wheel was sort of hanging over the edge as the guy was trying to make his way down and then eventually that just was too much. >> really admirable that the bus driver had the forethought and the foresight to get his passengers off the bus before he attempted this curve. >> it's estimated that there are 200 to 3 00 deaths per year on this road. in this area. violence continues in the middle east. right now i'm going to take you to bahrain. in this video you can see some
9:05 am
youths running with lit molotov cocktails. and they're throwing them over a fence on to a police vehicle. >> whoa. >> here's another video. reportedly posted by the group behind some of these attacks. this happened on friday, and this is reportedly from a group of jihadist youth who are trying to propel bahrain into a state of lawlessness. and public disorder. all of these attacks were on police forces, and the jihadist youth say this is a message to police forces, saying you will not cross into our village again. you see a molotov cocktail hit the windshield of a police vehicle while the police are trying to get away. and some of these cars are driving away from the youth on fire. so the general director of crime detection and forensic science in bahrain says that arrests were made on saturday and people were questioned about this incident and they will appear
9:06 am
before the public prosecution to face their charges. >> i'm shocked at the restraint the police showed. they obviously had guns and could have stood their ground. i'm surprised that things didn't get uglier than they did. >> i think because of the way the police handled the situation, you can see in lot of videos and images, police fleeing the scene. no police were injured or killed in the incident. the only thing that really happened was the damage to property and the police vehicles. there's three huge fires burning through the torres national park in chile. and this video was taken on an evacuation bus. and it's also been sped up. about 90 square miles have been burned as of monday. one 75-year-old man has died
9:07 am
because he refused to leave when they asked people to evacuate the area. the high winds have not allowed helicopters to get to the area, so only the 750 firefighters that were on the ground already are the only ones fighting that fire. this is a tourist site which is going to affect about 150,000 tourists that will not be able to come to this area. but there are some residents in the area that have been evacuated. there are over 100 homes that have already burned in that area. >> so summertime down there now. how is the heat affecting the fire? >> they did have a drought and they are having a nationwide heat wave. which is promoting the fire. over the weekend the entire country of chile was experiencing 48 different fires. video that shows why this guy probably won't get a safe driver's discount. see how some incredible

9:30 am
came upon the scene? >> we headed down the canyon to go to a store in logan, that's when we stumbled across the accident. i remember thinking this is going to be pretty cold. but once i got in the water, i don't remember being cold. i started feeling around for the windows, all the windows were up, i tried the doors and the doors were locked and that's when i pulled out my handgun and shot through the window. >> were you concerned about obviously hitting the children in. >> yes. it was a concern. i pushed my handgun and pushed it to the bottom of the river. so i knew the bullet would lodge into the roof of the vehicle or the river bed. >> how soon were there other people there helping you? >> it was maybe about 45 seconds or so. >> how did you guys manage to physically get the car turned over? >> a lot of manpower. six or eight other men, we started pushing up on the side of the vehicle and lifted it up out of the river. >> have you heard at all from the family? >> i have received one phone all. the father of the other young lady that we pulled out of the vehicle, he left me a voicemail
